Episode #7778 ~ Thorne makes a move to secure a future with Katie; Hope makes a selfless request of Liam.
Provided By SuzanneLiam: You know, I don't think I realized how much I needed this when I texted you to stop by, but... it's really good to see your smiling face.
Hope: Yeah. Yours, too.
Liam: Yeah. About that. I wasn't sure I'd ever smile again. My wife and my father. That's, um... what do you do with that?
Hope: Steffy assured me that it will never happen again. I mean, all she wants is you, your baby, the family you always dreamed of having. Look, we all need to put the needs of this child first. Especially you, liam, all right? She's carrying your son or daughter.
Ridge: I just wanted to come by and check on you.
Steffy: Thank you, but you just got married. Shouldn't you be with your wife?
Ridge: My wife understands. She's a mother first, and... I'm feeling a little guilty.
Ridge: I just got married to the love of my life, and my daughter is sitting here heartbroken.
Rick: I got to hand it to you, man.
Rick: Coming to the wedding. I know how you feel about my mom. It must have been hard for you. Still, you stepped up, you were ridge's best man. It was pretty big of you.
Thorne: Yeah, I guess I kind of surprised myself. But there's no fighting destiny, right?
Thorne: Besides, it's a little easier to move on when you have your sights set on someone else.
Katie: So, you heard I wasn't feeling well?
Maya: Yes, and I was coming this way, so I thought I would bring you these in case you wanted to work from home.
Katie: Oh! Um, thank you. That's -- that's very thoughtful of you.
Maya: Oh, no worries. So, is it a stomach virus, the flu...?
Katie: [ Sighs ] Actually, it's -- it's more of a personal day.
Katie: Between you and me, I'm having some issues with my love life.
Maya: I'm surprised. Most women would be thrilled to have thorne forrester interested in them.
> Katie: [ Chuckles ] What?
Rick: New lady, huh? Let me guess. Uh...genevieve.
Thorne: What, the fit model?
Rick: Yeah, dude, she's smokin'. I see how she looks at you.
Thorne: Yeah, I've seen that, too, but it's not her.
Rick: Another model, then?
Thorne: She's not a model.
Rick: Then she's beautiful.
Thorne: She's very beautiful. And she's smart.
Thorne: It's just -- there's another guy in the picture. Well, at least there was.
Katie: Uh, thorne forrester?
Maya: He's so cute! And since you're a free woman... unless...
Katie: Unless what?
Maya: There have been some rumors flying around that there's a mystery man, and... maybe this personal day means that that's all over?
Katie: Yeah, apparently.
Maya: So, then there's nothing holding you back.
Katie: From what?
Maya: Oh, come on, katie! We're family. You don't have to hide it from me. The wedding. I saw thorne kiss you.
Katie: Oh. [ Sighs ]
Steffy: Don't feel guilty. I'm really happy for you and brooke.
Ridge: I know that, but...
Steffy: No, but you two have what I hope liam and I will have again one day.
Ridge: So you haven't given up. Good, I -- I kind of thought maybe you had.
Steffy: Because he wasn't at my side at the wedding?
Ridge: Had to hurt.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. But he wasn't being cruel. Neither was hope.
Steffy: I just always saw her as my competition. Even when she showed up in L.A. Again, I thought it was because she wanted liam back. One more thing I was wrong about.
Hope: I just want to see you happy, to have the life and family that you always wanted. You know, I wasn't sure steffy could give that to you, or if she even deserved it, but after listening to her today --
Liam: Do you understand how insane it is that, given your history with steffy, you're still standing here, advocating for her?
Rick: So, this new lady in your life, she from L.A.?
Thorne: Yeah, born and raised.
Rick: Yeah. She in the fashion industry?
Thorne: [ Scoffs ] What is with the 20 questions?
Rick: Why the hell are you so secretive? It's not somebody we would disapprove of.
Thorne: No. Hardly. In fact, it's someone I've known for many years. It's just I'm seeing her very differently these days.
Katie: [ Sighs ] Oh, my god, I cannot believe you saw thorne kissing me.
Maya: Don't worry. I haven't told anyone, not even rick.
Katie: No, it's -- it's not that, it's just that -- it's not what you think.
Maya: What am I thinking? That you were secretly seeing someone, which seems to have cooled off and you're sad -- sad, but not devastated -- and now you have thorne interested in you. You're on a roll!
Katie: Not that you're pushing anything.
Maya: Look. All right, I realize that the breakup with mr. Mysterious may have hit you hard. But you have a gorgeous, caring man who seems to want to make you forget all of that. I know what I would do.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
Ridge: Liam and hope were married. It makes sense for you to wonder what would happen if she re-entered the picture, and I should have thought about that before I brought her here.
Steffy: No, no, you were thinking about brooke. You know how much she misses hope, and you were being thoughtful.
Ridge: Yeah, but it --
Steffy: No, besides, I was all wrong about hope. I was wrong to believe that she would take advantage of the situation that liam and I are going through. Instead, she's doing the opposite.
Steffy: I went to see hope earlier. I knew liam would be vulnerable, and it would be really easy for him to just reach out to her. I just -- I didn't know how hope would respond, if she would just take advantage of the situation. So I just asked her point blank, and instead of lashing out, she did something wonderful.
Steffy: She said she would support me. My baby and my marriage.
Hope: I mean, to be clear, i am not advocating for anyone in particular. I'm just trying to do the right thing.
Liam: Because that's what you always do.
Hope: I don't know about always.
[ Scoffs ] But to be honest, if -- if you didn't have this baby on the way, I might feel differently, but the fact is, this child exists, and soon you'll be able to hold that baby in your arms, a baby that needs the love of both of its parents. Steffy said that she would love you unconditionally for the rest of her life, but what about you, liam? Can you find forgiveness so that you and steffy can give this child the life that he or she deserves?
Ridge: So hope supports you.
Ridge: And your marriage.
Steffy: That, too.
Ridge: Mm-hmm, because you asked her to?
Steffy: [ Sighs ] She wants to do the right thing for everyone.
Ridge: Including herself.
Steffy: She said she loves liam. And she always will. But she couldn't live with herself if she used my separation to take liam away from me. Especially when there's a baby involved.
Ridge: So what did she ask in return?
Steffy: [ Sighs ] Oh, god. She wanted to know what happened with bill was a one-time thing.
Ridge: Of course it was a one-time thing. What a weird thing. He took advantage of you.
Steffy: Dad, dad, dad. I'm not -- please. I'm not doing this with you, okay? The point is, I made it clear to hope that I'm gonna be a good wife. No more secrets, no more lies. And I meant every word. I'm not gonna do that to liam again.
Ridge: I don't doubt that for a moment.
Steffy: But liam does, and that's why it's been so hard for him to forgive me.
Ridge: But you think this could do it?
Steffy: [ Sighs ] Well, if hope is willing to support me and my marriage and my child...
Ridge: He has a reason to come back.
Steffy: I'm not counting on it. But maybe hope can be the bridge that brings liam and me back together, and we can be a family for our baby.
Liam: See, but -- but this is -- this is what I'm struggling with. How do I even begin to...
Hope: Forgive steffy?
Liam: Maybe I never will. It'd be nice, but...
Hope: What do you think is holding you back?
Liam: Beyond the obvious?
Hope: Look, I know this feels like the worst betrayal imaginable...
Liam: Because it was, hope. It was the worst betrayal imaginable. It still is. I mean I -- I'm sorry. I hate saying it. Every time I look at my wife, i see my father.
Hope: Look, I am sorry, liam, I truly am, but whether or not you choose to forgive steffy, think of that child. And I know somewhere deep down in that big, generous heart of yours, you will be able to see past those scars of betrayal. But, I mean, whatever you decide, liam, it's up to you. Just know that whatever you decide, I'll be here for you.
Maya: Oh, gosh, look at the time. I have to get going.
Katie: Okay, well, thanks for stopping by and bringing me those folders, if that's the real reason you decided to come by.
Maya: What can I say? I just wanted to give you props for landing thorne.
Katie: Okay, all right, you're getting way ahead of yourself. I have not landed anyone.
Maya: Well, whatever it is, you deserve to be appreciated. And have fun.
Katie: Fun? Yeah, I mean, I have been enjoying myself lately, but that seems to have come to an abrupt end.
Maya: Then it's perfect timing. And I would imagine that you would have...a really great time with someone as handsome as thorne.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Thorne: Is that your phone, rick?
Rick: No, man, that's yours.
Thorne: With a sound like that, I don't think so.
Rick: I have my phone right here.
[ Chuckles ]
Thorne: What the --
Rick: Something wrong?
[ Cellphone rings ]
Steffy: Dr. Phillips. Hey.
So, how's the mother-to-be?
Steffy: Uh, I'm doing everything you and dr. Campbell have told me. I'm taking my prenatal pills, and I'm exercising daily.
Nothing too strenuous.
Steffy: No. No. I'm being very careful. This baby means everything to me.
Which is why I'm calling. We've got a last-minute cancellation. Dr. Campbell is still at her conference, but I could see you today for your first ultrasound.
Steffy: Uh, I thought my first ultrasound would be in a few weeks from now. Should I be concerned?
No, just being overly cautious in light of your past fertility issues. Are you available?
Steffy: Yes! Yes, of course! I can't wait to see my baby for the first time.
It's very exciting for a mother and father. I look forward to seeing you both.
Steffy: Thank you.
Liam: I'm glad you're back in L.A.
Hope: Yeah. Me, too. But we need to get you out of this room. You've been cooped up in here for too long.
Liam: Ugh, yeah, well, given what my father did, I'm certainly not going back to spencer publications.
Hope: I have an idea. I mean, one of the reasons i came back home was to start up hope for the future again, and not just because of the fashion but because a percentage of the profits would go to charity...
Liam: Yeah, yeah, no, I -- I always liked that you incorporated your work with good causes.
Hope: Yeah, so if forrester starts it up again, would you want to help?
Liam: You want me to help you?
Hope: Yeah, I mean, you understand the philanthropic world better than anyone else. You could help me with that aspect of the line. I mean, you ran the spencer foundation, so you are more than well-qualified, and, you know, it gives you a purpose, it gives you a reason to get out of this room. I mean, just -- just think about it.
Liam: I -- I will.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Liam: It's steffy.
Hope: Answer it.
Steffy: Hey. I just want to let you know that I'm going to the doctor's office.
Liam: Why, is something wrong?
Steffy: The baby's fine. Dr. Phillips called. They had a cancellation. I'm going to my first ultrasound.
Liam: So we can see the baby already?
Steffy: Yeah. I'm hoping you'll come and share this huge moment with me. Seeing our baby for the first time together.
Liam: Yeah, well, thanks for letting me know.
Hope: Steffy's having her first ultrasound?
Liam: Yeah. She's headed to the doctor now. She wants me to meet here there.
Hope: Well, I mean, you're gonna go, right? I mean, this is an important event. It's the first time you get to look at your son or daughter! And I know how much it would mean to steffy to have you there. Liam. You should go.
Liam: I mean, you really -- you think that? You think I should go? You are a good friend to me. Thank you for being here.
Hope: Yeah, well, I am here whenever you need me.
Liam: Yeah, well, I got a feeling I'm gonna be needing you a lot more.
